Really? What hills do you have 15 minutes from downtown that you can shred any day or night of the week, even after working all day? Nevermind that view, yeah. We're spoiled here and we usually know it but sometimes forget.
Riding 3, 4 or 5 times a week usually reminds me

Takes me 35 min from downtown to get to Seymour

The locals are small though. Cypress is ok size-wise but as soon as you go ride anywhere bigger the 'local legs' kick in and you can only do about 2min of riding between breaks lol
